We’ve partnered with the Green Mountain Comic Expo to offer a coupon that parents can use to bring one child to VT ComicCon free with a paying adult. You can print out these coupons for your library–large size, smaller size four to a page–and hand them out to any interested patron. The event takes place in Barre on September 15th and 16th.

The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries, Vermont School Library Association, and the Vermont Library Association believe that information literacy is crucial to Vermonters’ success from K-20, into the workplace and continuing throughout the lifespan. While librarians and libraries provide the foundation for teaching information literacy skills, offering quality information sources and collaborative spaces for all Vermonters, we do not work alone in valuing and building these skills…There is an urgent need for dialog among key stakeholders to raise awareness of the importance of information literacy as a lifelong skill, strengthen channels of communication to help students transition their skills from one setting to another, and to help Vermont’s students become information literate adults and citizens.
Join VLA Next Friday at the O’Brien Community Center in Winooski at 6:30 for a lecture by Slate author Justin Peters on the role of free culture, libraries, and liberty in America. Event is free and open to the public. Contact Raymond Brior with any questions about the event
The more libraries we have participating, the better our final statistics will be, so be sure to join us for this exciting initiative! We look forward to getting a vision of Vermont libraries!
Thank you for joining us at the 121st Annual Vermont Library Conference!
